About

So much can get in the way of feeling close to those we love, and sometimes even block us from loving ourselves. All the many stressors we experience can leave us feeling like we don't have much left to give, and our relationships and well-being suffer as a result. Sometimes echoes of past trauma come alive in the present when we least expect them. But strong bonds with loved ones can be an amazing source of safety, strength, and healing - I want to help your relationships be that source. My work is primarily with couples who desire increased connection with each other. I also work with individuals struggling in relationships.
My compassionate approach to therapy is guided by attachment theory. I have completed advanced training in Emotionally Focused Therapy, an empirically validated model that has been shown to enhance closeness between partners. I continually seek further education on neuroscience, trauma, sex, and systemic issues that impact personal and relational well-being.
Your pain deserves to be heard and cared for. I welcome the opportunity to help you feel more connected and secure. Feel free to call or email with any questions about getting started.
